Where can I find comparative information regarding the costs to operate an indoor institutional pool, an indoor liesure pool, and an outdoor water park? WE are making plans to build all three and need to know estimated operating costs. Thanks!
The best thing for you to do is to research the facilites located near the area you would like to build. This is better suited since costs can be different from state to state or even county to county. First come up with a base type of facility you would like. Size, depth, features, oeprating hours. Then try and find facilites near your operating parameters. Then, you are able to compare apples to apples.
You may want to consult a commercial swimming pool engineering company.There are so many variables out there to compare.Volume of water,water suface area,water features,energy utility cost per KW and gas therms.Will the pools have automatic covers? Will they have solar thermal,PV solar,geothermal heating?We have a new highschool with a vacant swimming pool because the school district can not afford the heating bill.Commercial swimming pool projects have expansive areas of asphalt and concrete surfaces that can incorporate INDEKSOLAR heating and actually mitigate the heat from the surface while heating the pools and hot water use within the building structures,including bathrooms,showers and even preheating hotel boilers.
